Attending the Takoma Park Folk Festival Is Good for Your Health

You love live music, right? Well, it turns out that it's not just fun, engaging, and transporting. A new study by O2 and Patrick Fagan, expert in behavioral science and Associate Lecturer at Goldsmith’s University, reveals that attending live music performances - specifically live, not just listening alone at home - confers substantial health benefits on attendees:

  • Longer lifespan

  • Increased sense of wellbeing - more effective than yoga and dog walking!
